I'm drunk and I'm bored. Time to post an update.

Interior starting to come together.

Braking system complete

Not a big fan of chrome, but this heater core housing came up on Craigslist for cheap. Needed to switch from SBC to BBC anyway.

Clearance in the front for 245/60/15 isn't too bad... I want more, but I dont know if I can fit more.

Engine ready to go: This is build #3. I decided to switch it from race gas to E85, so I pulled it apart again.

Engine in:

M-22 back from the shop... ready for 700+ horses. Not that I'll be making anything close to that for the first couple of years. But since I was spending the money, might as well plan for the future.

Fuel system starting to come together. The pump is definitely going to be the weak point. It'll probably be the first thing to get upgraded... Then a clutch... then a driveshaft... One thing at a time.

Any suggestions on a better way to mount this pump/filter?

It's going to be a low motherfucker. Even with 550 pound springs here's where it sits with the coilovers bottomed out. I'll bring it up a couple inches... I was just playing around with this alignment.
